And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Gentle Curry is rated 4.8929 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this softer curry! I got this to try for my sensitive paint, he's never really enjoyed being curried (and would occaisionaly flinch his back depending on where I was currying). After searching for a soft curry, I finally found this one and he is SO much happier now. I like that it also stays soft in the cold, some other curries I've had were soft when it was warm, but would harden once cold. I've been using it almost every day for 2 months now, and it's holding up great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a flexible curry! I love that this curry is flexible!  It does a great job of digging up dirt, and my very sensitive Thoroughbred seems to like this curry most of all his brushes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle Curry Most effective curry I've come across, raises the dirt w/out the stiffness of most curries. Soft and flexible to handle. I've purchased 4 !!! :~)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horses favorite curry My horse adores this curry. It has longer rubber nubs than traditional curries. He reacts to this the way he reacts to me scratching him with my nails. Soft enough rubber to use on his whole body & face. The handle fits my adult hand well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Wonderful small curry. Fits in the palm of my hand and bends for hard to curry places such as legs.Much better than my large rubber curry. A must have.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite curry Perfect to use on legs. One of my horses hates the groom mit kind of curry on his legs, but he stands like a rock and waves his lip for this one. Not sure what the big difference is but I'm really happy to have found something he can tolerate. Easy to clean out with the hose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A treat for my horse My horse has VERY sensitive skin and hates to be curried or brushed with hard brushes. This curry has to be one of his favorites. It is soft to the touch and he doesnt glare at me anymore when I go over his sensitive areas. Great for a whole body massage and grooming sessions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Groomer This curry was a bit thinner than I thought from the picture, but it gets the job done. Not so good for long winter coats, but for summer it will be wonderful! Very soft and flexible, so it massages while you groom. My 16 hand draft X is sensitive across his back, and he loves this thing. I bought two as the price was so reasonable; one for each of my horses. Would definitely recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had 1 Bought 2 More Love this curry, I have a very sensitive mare and I purchased this curry for her. She loved it, so I purchased 2 more. I think they do a much better job then the tradition and are great for scrubing as well:)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size, easy to use I like the Gentle Curry because it's not hard rubber like other typical curry's. It's soft rubber, so it's gentle and comfortable on the horse but just as effective as a curry should be. It's slightly smaller than regular sized curry so it's a thoughtful design for women and children. Since it's soft rubber, it flexes over the contour of the horse which is more effective. It's also more comfortable for the horse because you aren't bumping them when you come upon a boney area like the shoulder and withers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great brush This is a great brush for getting areas that are hard to get to. Like getting mud off the side of your horses face near the ears and eyes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best curry ever (not an exaggeration) Both me and my horse are picky about curry combs, but this Gentle Curry is literally the Goldilocks of curry combs. Other curry combs are too hard (ouch!), others too soft (waste of time); still others are so small they seem made for a child's hand. The Gentle Curry is the best of everything! My sensitive OTTB loves this, even on the most ouchy areas of his back. He really leans into it, and that means I can put enough pressure on to really remove the hair and dirt like I want to. The whole curry is flexible, which means it can wrap around his legs, too. I've got one for the barn and one in my kit for shows.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from gentle for sensitive TBs My new OTTB came in body sore and super sensitive to touch. He would pin his ears when you gently brushed his sides. :-(The first time I curried him with the Gentle Curry, he relaxed and dropped his head. Now he enjoys his grooming sessions. This is a great product for thin skinned horses!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from gentle curry Very useful for all sensitive and curvy areas. The size is good and its easy to hold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Curry comb I love this curry comb and so does my horse. My mare has thin skin and I wanted a curry that wouldnt hurt her and this one fits the bill. I love it so much and I have smaller hands and it fits on my hand easily and with no problem. It is also easy to clean which is very good. Just bang it against the wall gently and all the hair and dirt fall off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So simple ... way has no one made these before? I LOVE this curry! My very sensitive skinned OTTB does not like over curries or stiff brushes but he leans right into this one. The points are soft enough to feel good but stiff enough to bring hair and dirt to the surface. Great for legs and faces as well!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this curry! This is the best grooming tool in my kit. It is soft, flexible, gentle, and great for massaging out hair and dead skin on my horses. Plus, the price is right! Buy one or two.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little brush I was searching for a small curry that could still do the job on my Miniature Horses. It gets to the root of the dirt, and is small enough to reach all of the mini spots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at First Touch My horse and I (and my trainer) LOVE this curry! We use it on a big warmblood but like TB's he can be sensitive to other, stiffer curries with larger nubbins. This one molds to your hand/the horse's body and the nubbins are the perfect size no matter if you're rubbing his face, his body or his legs. I have to say I thought I was doing a good job grooming my horse but THIS curry really gets down deep and (painlessly and effortlessly) removes dirt, dead hair and your basic crud. I'm keeping all my other curries, but this is the one I reach for first.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Belongs In Every Grooming Box My girls love this curry. Both are very sensitive, but thoroughly enjoy being groomed with this curry.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
